Dr Francesco Bonaccorso

Research Fellow


University of Cambridge

Research summary

My research interests encompass solution processing of carbon nanomaterials (such as graphene, nanotubes and nanodiamonds), their spectroscopic characterization, incorporation into polymer composites and thin films for application in photonics and optoelectronics, such as fully flexible transparent conductors, liquid crystal based smart windows, dye sensitized solar cells, and ultrafast lasers.
